JIT APIs and Attaching to a Process

By David L. Anderson, Published: 11/04/2011, Last Updated: 11/04/2011

Attaching to a process that uses the JIT APIs is not supported.  That is, the APIs will not work in the case of attaching to a running process using Hotspots, Concurrency, or Locks and Waits analysis types. The current design does not allow for this use case - Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE must launch the application. 

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
